Lyrics
GLORIA (Count the Cost, Chronology, Word Marquee Collection)

Words & Music by David Meece
Copyright 1985 Meece Music (admin by) WORD Music

Over the hills they heard Him coming
Riding the wind like a distant storm
Louder and louder they could hear it
Sounds of a thousand voices strong

Such a celebration
Filled up the heavens
With all the angels singing as one
There was such a celebration
Filled with elation
Lord of all the ages had come
Gloria in excelsis deo
Gloria in excelsis deo

Suddenly flashed a streak of lightning
Lighting the sky like the mid-day sun
Followed a host of angels singing
Glory to God the King has come

Such a celebration
Filled up the heavens
With all the angels singing as one
There was such a celebration
Filled with elation
Lord of all the ages had come
Gloria in excelsis deo
Gloria in excelsis deo

GOD HOLDS THE FUTURE (Everybody Needs a Little Help)

Words & Music by David Meece
Copyright 1978 Meece Music (admin by) WORD Music

You haven't rested for days
And you're so wrapped up in worry
That you can't even think

You've done the best you can do
But the answer still evades you
To the problems that you face

Chorus:
God holds the future -- He's got a plan
There's no need to worry, 'cause it's all in His hand
So if you are struggling, with what you should do
God holds the future for you.

He'll lead you if you just ask
But you've got to trust His wisdom
And believe in His word
He sees what you cannot see
And He knows and wants the best for you
So it's time that you learned.

(Repeat chorus).

GOD ONLY KNOWS (Candle in the Rain)

Music by Gino Vanelli
Copyright 1987 Black Keys Music/Screen Gems-EMI Music

There"s a star in the northern sky
And it shines
There"s a wind from another world
It blows through my mind

There are stones beneath my feet
There are valleys dark and wide
And though He shakens my belief
He will not be denied

There"s a road up there where the eagle flies
There"s a path beyond the highest hill
Oh no I don"t care how far Heaven lies
I stake my life in this road I chose
God only knows

There"s a voice from a distant place
It calls my name
There"s a hand that pulls me up
To a higher plain

There are mountains high to climb
And rivers deep to cross
Though His love may lead me blind
My soul will not be lost

There"s a road up there where the eagle flies
There"s a path beyond the highest hill
Oh no I don"t care how far Heaven lies
I stake my life in this road I chose
God only knows

Oh no I don"t care how far Heaven lies
I stake my life in this road I chose
God only knows
God only knows
God only knows
Only God really knows

GOD"S LOVE (I Just Call on You)

Words & Music by David Meece
Copyright 1977 Meece Music (admin) WORD Music

Maybe it"s hard for you to see
Thru all the tears you"re crying
Maybe the scar"s too deep for you to erase
Maybe the things that mattered most
You once held in your hand
Have all slipped away

Then maybe it"s time you realized
That nothing"s gainded by hating
Maybe it"s time you put away that old lie
Maybe it"s time you gave your life a new
Chance to be free - open your eyes

Chorus:
And let God"s love guide you
Let His mighty arms surround you
Let Him fill all your sorrow
With hope for tomorrow
For the olive leaf flies with the dove
In God"s Love

So never give up your faith my friend
And let Him always guide you
Never give up no matter how dark the moon
Never give up the hope He brings will
Sustain you until -
The light shines again

Refrain:
And let God"s love guide you
Let His mighty arms surround you
Let Him fill all your sorrow
With hope for tomorrow
For the olive leaf flies with the dove
In God"s Love
You"ve gott believe in His love -
I believe, I believe - in God"s Love

GOSPEL TRAIN (Are You Ready, Front Row)

Words & Music by David Meece
Copyright 1980 Meece Music (admin by) WORD Music

E'verybody"s waitin' for the Judgement Day

When the saints are lifted on the gospel train

There won't be any stopping,
any waitin' in line,
It's just a one-way ticket into paradise.

I'll be waitin' with my bags all packed
When I hear that whistle and a rumblin' tracks.

It's gonna be excitin'
When it's ready to go back
When I board that train that's goin' home.

Chorus
All aboard for the gospel train,
Seats reserved and the tickets made.
Gonna be there when the conductor says
"All aboard for the gospel train.
All aboard for the gospel train."

Gonna leave my trials
and my troubles behind,
There's gonna be no sorrow
at the end of the line
Waitin' for the city
With the streets of pure gold,
When the Lord Almighty
'cides its ready to go.

Chorus

I can hardly wait until the glorious day

When the saints of God sing "Amazing Grace."

Ev'rybody near me is gonna hear me shout,

When I leave the station on the last train out.

Chorus

GOT TO KNOW YOU"RE THERE (DAVE"S PRAYER) (David)

Words & Music by David Meece
Copyright 1976 Meece Music (admin by) WORD Music

I"ve got to have You there beside me
No matter what it takes to be
I"ve got to feel Your presence ever at my side
Oh I can"t hide all the things You mean to me
Through every moment that I"m living
Through every smile I feel inside
Through every tear that ever trickles from my eye
Oh I can"t hide all the things You mean to me

Refrain:
And I"ve got to know You"re there
I"ve got to know You"re there beside me
Waiting for me, watching o"er me
Guarding all my life

And I"ve got to know You"re there
I"ve got to know You"re there
And I can"t live without You
Love without You
Be without the knowledge that You"re there

And I"ve got this feeling inside of me now
That won"t let go
It tells me of truth - of love-
For everything living is You
In Your strength not in mine
In Your Word, in Your love
Let me be what You want...for all of my life

Then when I think about tomorrow
I know it won"t be yesterday
"Cause everything I"ve ever done to make You cry
I needn"t hide
"Cause I know You"re right there by me

(Repeat Refrain)
I"ve got to know You - got to know You"re there
You"re there - You"re there

GOD"S PROMISES/RAINBOWS IN THE NIGHT (Odyssey)

Word and Music by David Meece

Copyright, 1995 Word Music, Ariose Music

Deep within this darkened heart of mine
The Word of God still shines with hope
Deep within this frightened life I live
A voice so soft and still grows
And when the sun is hidden
And shadows cloud my starless skies
Amazingly I turn and see a light

God's promises are rainbows in the night
Shining hope inside when shadows cloud my eyes
His promises are rainbows in the night
Guiding through the darkest times
God's promises are rainbows in the night

Looking back on all the roads I've known
The echoes of the songs I've sung
Looking back there's a thread of love and grace
Connecting each line and s___e I've known
And all the years I thought were lost
On empty searching without clues
Now trace a journey to the highest truth

God's promises are rainbows in the night
Shining hope inside when shadows cloud my eyes
His promises are rainbows in the night
Guiding through the darkest times
God's promises are rainbows in the night.

GOING HOME (Once in a Lifetime

Words by David Meece & Michael Hudson
Music by David Meece
Copyright 1993 Meece Music (admin by) WORD Music and Ariose Music

It should feel so good
It should be so right
Going home again
To find the years that shaped my life
But shadows line the streets
They whisper endlessly
And all I see are ghosts
Of my most painful memories

Going home, going home
Lord someday I'm going home
To a place where I know I belong
Where the ghosts and the fears
And the shadows disappear
Oh His angels bear us there
Going home

And somewhere in the night
You see a distant light
Lifting up my soul
To meet the God who gave us life
Mama don't you cry
Children don't you weep
For all the ghosts have vanquished
And my journey is complete

Oh going home, going home
Lord someday I'm going home
To a place where I know I belong
Where the ghosts and the fears
And the shadows disappear
Oh his angels bear us there
Going home
